Telecentre family gathering

Moratuwa, Sri Lanka – May 1, 2006: It’s always inspiring to a
family grow and evolve. This is exactly what I witnessed last night at
the opening of the second Sri Lanka telecentre family workshop at Sarvodaya headquarters in
A highlight: four young telecentre operators who won the ‘best poster’
contest from the last workshop making a presentation to remind us of
the challenges we’re trying to address together. The first of their two
posters depict a village where people are unaware of the telecentre and
afraid of the Internet. The second poster shows the telecentre
operators working with the local Buddhist monks to explain the
opportunities for learning and knowledge that the telecentre offers.
Today, the family digs into the real meat of the matter: 180 village
telecentre operators dreaming and planning how they will work together
over the coming two years on raising awareness, building their skills
and developing services to offer at the village level.
